Storyboard Text

  • <--Lamarck vs. Darwin-->
  • I began my scientific journey as a botanist, but then I "upgraded" and became a founding professor at the Musee National d'Histoire Naturelle .
  • I went to Cambridge University and studied Botany. After that I sailed around the sea on an exploration mission in the South American seas where I studied living and fossilized plant and animal life (I also collected some samples to study in the future)
  • I branched off the work from my mentor, Count George-Louis Leclerc de Buffon, and I also published a book!
  • Well, after I got back from my voyage, I analyzed my data and within 2 years, I had gotten a basis for my theory. I wrote a book, but I never published it for a while.
  • MY theory is that a simple organism will suddenly appear, and then evolve to change itself for the better. Like, giraffes used to have short necks, but after years of stretching them to reach the tall trees, they eventually stretched it out and passed it on to their children.
  • And MY theory is that because organisms produce so many offspring, only the strongest of them will survive, aka natural selection, so the strong traits will be passed on and the weak traits will stop passing on.
  • Gosh darn! You are right! Don't I feel silly!
  • Silly Lamarck, things can't just appear out of thin air! And if I reach for the top shelf all my life, my children aren't going to be born with abnormally long arms!
